Writing Your Life

As noted journalist, author, and professor William Zinsser said, “Rewriting is the essence of writing well, where the game is won or lost.”

You can write a good story, but making it a great one takes rewriting, editing, and revising. Some say as much as eighty percent of the time invested in a story is spent in revision after the story is written because editing is just that important. I have not heard of an author, no matter how many books he or she has published, who says the work comes out just as it should be in the first draft. If you come across a writer who says that, ask for proof. Allstories benefit from careful examination and precise alterations.

If you’d like to sharpen your editing skills and maybe even add a few new tools to your process, join me for the live, online workshop, Edit Like an Expert, on Saturday, June 22, 2019, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. In this workshop, you will learn:

              • proven editing practices
              • how to systematically edit your work
              • how to organize your edits, manage previous drafts, view the status of your project at a glance
              • how to create your own editing process

Bring a couple of double-spaced pages of a story you’ve written to the workshop and receive hands-on instruction as you practice each of the editing tools discussed.

Cost of the Edit Like an Expert workshop is only $25 because we are perfecting our online class process, so take advantage of this reduced price. Invest in yourself and your writing and learn how to become a better editor of your wonderful stories.
